Robert "Bobby" Jay Fisk, 25, and Timothy Stephan, 28, appeared in 17th Circuit Court for a status conference Tuesday afternoon. The pair said no to a plea deal from the Kent County Prosecutor's Office that would have allowed each to plead guilty to two counts of murder and spend the rest of his life in prison.

Why does our court system deem it necessary to always have to deal?
If they did the crime? End it for them!
I do not understand our system!
They are criminals and should receive no reduction in sentence for any reason!

They should cut their heads off. They are worthless pos don't deserve life in prison. They deserve a slow and very painful death.

They are now going to stand the trial and re-live what they did. This is again going to cause the family heartache all over again. Justice system sucks!

They better not try and plead insanity at trial, even though you have to be seriously off to pull an innocent couple out of bed in the middle of the night for no reason, drive them to a gravel pit and murder them. How awful, I can't believe the family had this happen to them.

these 2 psycho's deserve to be fried. There is no justice for a crime like this but I am sure the family would get some closure in watching these scum bags sizzle in the chair. Michigan really needs capital punishment.

Article failed to say what the "deal" was or say why they did not know what the deal was, strange. Many times the "deal" is irrelevant other than it gets the case resolved. For instance if someone is charged with a 20 yr. felony but everyone knows they are not going to get anywhere near 20 yrs why not offer a 10 or 5 yr. felony and get it over with. Forging checks for instance is a 14 yr. no one gets 14 for a first offense so why not offer a deal and move the case along?

The deal was if they plead guilty to 2 counts of felony murder, which carries mandatory life, the prosecutors would drop the kidnapping, home invasion, armed robbery and felony use of firearms. Fisk and Stephan, figured out there is no benefit to them and decided to take their chances with a jury

Did you all see the pictures of these animals. Take a good look, pure evil. I hope they both suffer a slow painfull violent death in prison.
